Modi, Oli jointly inaugurate petroleum products pipeline

New Delhi: To stengthen bilateral relations between India and Nepal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Nepal's Prime Minister K. P. Sharma Oli on Tuesday inaugurated South Asia's first cross-border petroleum products pipeline which will provide cleaner petroleum products at an affordable cost to the people of Nepal.

The 69 km-long Motihari-Amlekhgunj oil pipeline was inaugurated by the two leaders via a video link from their respective capitals.

The pipeline was built in just little over a year at the cost of Rs 350 crore, entirely borne by the Indian oil Corporation, an Indian Public Sector Undertaking (PSU).

Modi expressed confidence that bilateral relations between India and Nepal will continue to further deepen and expand across diverse sectors.

Oli extended an invitation to the Modi to visit Nepal. Modi accepted the proposal.
